     3== Device Support ==
     4
     5Smartmontools work on different operating systems. Due to OS-specific
     6issues and also depending on the different state of smartmontools
     7development on the platforms, device support ist not the same 
     8for all OS platforms.

     10==== Supported Devices ====

     13
     14==== Documentation On Device Support ====
     15 * [wiki:USB USB devices and smartmontools] - To access SMART functionality, smartmontools must be able to send ATA commands directly to the disk.
     16 * [wiki:NAS NAS devices and smartmontools] - Smartmontools can work also on ''Network Attached Storage'' (NAS) devices, if the appropiate functions are available there, e.g. on Dlink DNS-323 with [http://www.inreto.de/dns323/fun-plug/ fonz firmware]

     36== SMART Attributes ==
     37''Different vendors, different interpretation..''
     38The raw SMART attributes (temperature, power-on lifetime, and so on) are stored in vendor-specific structures. Sometime these are strange. Hitachi disks (at least some of them) store power-on lifetime in minutes, rather than hours. IBM disks (at least some of them) have three temperatures stored in the raw structure, not just one. And so on.[[BR]]
     39If you find strange output, or unknown attributes, please look in the below listed pages with vendor specific info.[[BR]]
     40When you don't find an answer to your question there, send an email to [http://lists.sourceforge.net/mailman/listinfo/smartmontools-support smartmontools-support] and we'll help you try and figure it out.
